Lightbulb technical improvments

Hello to you all!
Glad to find a community to my Subaru and me.
I own an automatic '94 grand leone(1600cc) wagon and would like to chaleng my mechanical skills and to impruve its suspention,gaer,wheel base,and motor.
Am i at the rite place? if someone can give me some advises and relevant information i will be gratefull.
Basicly the idea is to replace the engin to 1800cc,put a manual 4x4 5 speed gear box,leaft the car 3 or 4 inches with longer and stronger suspention,and to feat all axles and drive shafts to the new sizes.
would love to have comments and if you know hwo can I contact for mechanucal aid.
thanks allot,
Zap

tbh by the time you've done that i would have thought you'd be better trrading it in for a higher spec impreza, then all the tiems will be done for you and prob be alot cheaper to do.

sounds like alot of work - if you are into rebuilds as hobby then great but as said, why not start with something more suitable ?

Keep us informed.

Basically to do this to your car would probably work out cheaper selling the Leone and buying a Impreza WRX which will be a ready built 4x4 turbo charged 2ltr car.

as pete said mate, the cost of upgrading the parts will be more than the cost of a wrx or sti.
